Now restored in 4K, Carpenter’s grungy sci-fi actioner is set in a dystopian 1997, where Manhattan island has been walled off to create a huge maximum security prison.

When Air Force One is hijacked and the President’s escape pod lands in Manhattan, enter Snake Pliskin - a former special forces soldier turned convicted bank robber who is tasked with rescuing the Leader of the Free World in return for a pardon.

Injected with micro-explosives timed to go off after 22 hours if he doesn’t return with the President, Snake enters the hell of old New York.
